review 23 Sep 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The stunning views at the Valbone pass and the boat trip.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Bring walking poles! The terrain was very rocky and steep in places and it really helps your balance and saves your knees.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Mostly, yes. Staying in different hotels most nights and using different bed linen/towels all the time will always have some environmental impact, but I still felt that this vacation reduced environmental impact. Both hotels in the mountains served local food and encouraged drinking tap water (which was lovely!) instead of using plastic bottles. I think it benefited local people too, as we were not using big international hotel chains.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Amazing experience!
